This slot machine is all things exciting! Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness is an online slot machine that is powered by Play ‘N Go. The video slot game is based on the Cthulhu Mythos, which is a fictionary universe that was created by Lovecraft.
How to Play?
The gameplay is also quite exciting as the game is a cascading slot. With each drop or spin, you can continue getting wins. In addition, the game offers a Portal Effects feature. In this feature, each spin or cascade may win you up to 2,000x the stake payout.
In Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness, a very handsome explorer goes on a quest, doing everything that he can in order to unlock the Cult of Cthulhu’s secrets. In this cascading reels slot game, the paylines are quite strange. This is because they do not pay from left to right, or from right to left. Instead, you win when you get four or more matching symbols. These symbols should be connected horizontally, or vertically, in a cluster. After you form the cluster and you win, the winning symbols are then removed and replaced with new symbols. If lady luck is on your side, you will continuously form clusters of matching symbols, thereby continuing to win from just one spin/drop.
The symbols that you can expect to come across as you play include daggers, skulls, four differently colored stones, as well as octopus pendants. The most rewarding symbol in Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness is the octopus pendant. Getting a cluster of 10 or more octopus pendants will award you 10x your stake. To the left of the reels is the portal, which will get charged each time that you win. This portal is responsible for awarding you some exciting bonus features.
Symbols and Features
Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness slot game comes with many wilds, which will help with creating more winning combinations. These include the Book of Madness, which is a special wild symbol, as well as the Necronomicon. Both wild symbols will substitute for all the other symbols to help create bigger clusters.
The other wild symbol of the game is the Rich Wilde. This is a special multiplier wild symbol, which substitutes all other symbols. Not only that, but the Rich Wilde will also double your winnings x2.
The Eye Marks are special positions that appear randomly during gameplay. If you manage to form a cluster on these positions, you will receive two special wild symbols. These symbols are then added to the grid on the next winless cascade. Each time that you win by forming a cluster with 7 symbols, 2 special wild symbols will be added to the 5×5-reel grid. The same happens when you form a cluster with 14 symbols.
The Abyss Portal Effect feature will be activated when you win with the special wild. In the feature, a row or column from the special wild will be removed, which charges the Portal. A removal will be initiated from the special wild symbol if the Abyss removes yet another special wild symbol.
Two special wild symbols are added when you win on 27 symbols. The Void Portal Effect feature will be triggered if you win with the special wild. The Void will remove matching symbols from the screen randomly. After those symbols have been removed, new symbols will fall into the empty spaces, thereby creating more wins.
The Other World Free Round feature will be activated if you win on 42 symbols. When this happens, you will be awarded one free spin, which carries three random Portal Effects. If you are lucky enough, you will get an extra Portal effect added for every 3 extra matching symbols collected. This is provided that the Portal is over-charged. In total, there are about seven Portal Effects that you can actually benefit from. When no wins can be achieved anymore, Portal Effects will be activated. These include:
Special Wilds – you will get four special wild symbols added to the grid.
Abyss – again, 4 special wilds will be added. The Abyss Portal Effect feature will be activated when a winning combo is formed with any special wild.
Void – 4 special wild symbols will be added as well. The Void Portal Effect feature will be activated when you win with a special wild symbol.
Eye Marks – there are about 12 Eye Marks that can be seen in the feature. In order to open an eye, you have to get a win in its location. The Mega Wild Cthulhu symbol will be added to the grid if you manage to open all the eyes. With every cascade, the Mega Wild Cthulhu symbol moves down to the next row, acting as a wild. It keeps going down until it finally falls off the grid.
